A lot of people think they know everything about dogs, so here are some unusual and interesting facts for you dog lovers;
The average dog is as intelligent as a two-year-old child, it understands up to 250 words and gestures, how amazing is that? They can also count up to five, if a human had this much knowledge, it wouldn't be anything to shout about, but an animal who cannot speak, it is quite wonderful.
Some people may say that bringing a child up with a dog in the house is dangerous, whereas a child who has been brought up with a dog is healthier and more adjusted to human beings. They have stronger immune systems and less allergies, but obviously, never leave a small child alone with a dog.
When dogs kick after doing their dirt every thought they were trying to cover it? Well guess again, by doing this they are using the scent glands on their paws to mark their territory... as well as leaving a lovely present.
Dogs as well as other animals are abandoned, not treated well and are in poor condition all around the world, places such as the RSPCA and other local rescue centres can help them, although they cannot do all the work. If you are looking for a new pet, maybe try these places and you could make one happy animal, and it sure will make you happy in return.
